It is "generally" easier for a shorter guy to fill out the muscle bellies than a tall lanky guy. Want some extreme examples? Here is the 2008 Olympia line-up. These stats are pre-Olympia and do not necessarily compare to where everyone came in.

Melvin Anthony 5'8 240
Gustavo Badell 5'8 245
Jay Cutler 5'9 267
Moe Moussawl 5'9 235
Kevin English 5'5 202
Toney Freeman 6'2 286
Phil Heath 5'9 230
David Henry 5'5 207
Dexter Jackson 5'7 230
Johnny Jackson 5'8 240
Craig Richardson 5'7 215
Ronnie Rockel 5'6 225
Silvio Samuel 5'7 220
Sergey Shelestov 5'11 270
Branch Warren 5'7 245
Dennis Wolf 5'11 267

See all the six foot plus guys in there? Oh yeah exactly one. See a lineup of guys mostly 5'5-5'10? Yup.
